(Paurri) stanza by the fourth Guru. Awareness of (ootam-u) the sublime Naam/Divine virtues and commands is (hariaa = greening) invigorating; (har-i) the Almighty is (purakh-u) all-pervasive, (niranjan = unstained) untouched by the world-play and (maulaa) ever blossoming – Eternal.

Those (jo) who (japdey) keep in mind (har-i = dispels vices) the purifying and (har-i = greening) rejuvenating Divine virtues and commands (dinas-u) day and (raat-i) night; (kaula) temptations in the world-play (seyvey) serve at (tin) their (charan) feet, i.e. they are alert to convert the tendency to fault to positive action.

(Slok) prologue (M: 4) by the fourth Guru. I have (pirharri) love for (har-i) the Almighty (ikas-u = one) alone; (har-i) the Almighty (iko) alone dwells in (meyrai) my (chit-i) mind.

(Jan) humble fourth Nanak – the seeker – places (adhaar-u) reliance only on (ik-u) the One (har-i) Almighty (prabh) Master; (gat-i) freedom – from vices in life and from rebirth after death – and (pat-i) the honor of union with the Almighty is obtained (tey) from – with grace of – (ikas) the One Almighty. 2.

(Panchey) all the five (sabad = sounds) musical instruments – stringed/violin, metal, skin/drum, blowing type/trumpet and earthen pitcher – (vajey) play, i.e. great  joy is experienced with (mat-i) understanding of God abiding within, (gurmat-i) with the guru’s guidance; one who is fortunate, the celestial music (vajiaa) plays (anhad-u) incessantly in his/her mind when (raam-u) the Almighty, (mool-u = root) the source of (aanad/anand) bliss/joy is (deykhiaa) is seen (sabh-u) everywhere; (govid-u/gobind) the Master of the world (gajiaa) manifests within (sabdi) through the word, i.e. following guidance, of (gur) the guru.

(Har-i) the Almighty has had (eyko) one unchanging (veys-u) form (aad-i) from before time, (jugaad-i) from beginning of time; (har-i) the Almighty (prabh) Master is (bhajiaa) remembered (mat-i) with understanding obtained (gurmat-i) from the guru’s counsel.

(Slok) prologue (M: 4) by the fourth Guru. The Almighty’s (sarovar-u) pool (bhgat-i) of devotion (uchhlai) is overflowing; like rivers (bharey) full (subhar = well filled) to the top of the bank (vahann-i) flow, i.e. Naam is present within everyone.

(Jinaa) those who (manniaa) obey/follow (satigur-u) the true guru’s guidance, they have (vadd) good (bhaag) fortune to (lahann-i) find Naam within, says (jan) humble fourth Nanak. 1.

(Slok) prologue (M: 4) by the fourth Guru. Question: (Naam = names) attributes of (har-i har-i) the Almighty are (asankh) countless; (gun) virtues of (har-i har-i) the Almighty (na jaah-i) cannot (kathan-u) stated.

The Almighty is (agam-u) beyond reach and is (agaadh-i = bottomless) unfathomable.

Then (kit-u = which, bidh-i = method) how do (jan = servants) the devotees/seekers of (har-i) the Almighty (milah-i) find, and (milaah-i = cause to meet) lead others to, the Almighty.

.੨.

 

Answer: (Jan = servants) the devotees (japnt = remember) praise and emulate, and (japant) cause others to praise/emulate, (jas-u = glory) virtues of (har-i) the Almighty, but do not try to (paaey = put, keemat-i = price) evaluate the Almighty because one cannot know God’s virtues and powers (ik-u) one (til-u = sesame seed) bit.

O (har-i) Almighty (prabh) Master, You are (agam) beyond reach for us, please (meyl-i laihu) unite us (laaey) by attaching to Your (larr-i) scarf, i.e. by enabling us to practice Your Naam/virtues and commands, says (jan) humble fourth Nanak. 2.

(Paurri) stanza by the fourth Guru. (Har-i) the Almighty being (agam-u) beyond reach, (agochar-u) not perceived by the senses; (kio kar-i) how does one (pikha = see, darsan-u = vision) find the Almighty who is (agam-u) beyond reach.

If there is (kichh-u) some (vakhar-u = thing) visible object, (su) that (varneeai) can be described, but (tis-u = that) the Almighty has no (roop) form or (rikha = sign) feature.

One whom God decides to (bujhaaey) make aware, IT (bujhaaey dey-i) gives understanding of Divine virtues and powers, (soee) that (jan-u) person (dikhaa) sees – experiences the Almighty within.

This understanding comes by joining (satisangat-i) the holy congregation, (chaattsaal) the school of (satigur) the true guru (jit-u) where (gun) virtues of (har-i) the Almighty are (sikha) taught.

(Dhann-u dhan-u) greatly blessed is (su) that (rasna) tongue – that praises the Almighty, (dhann-u) blessed are (kar) the hands – which carry out instructions of the guru – (dhann-u) blessed is (su) that (paadhaa) teacher (satiguru) true guru (mil-i) by meeting and following (jit-u) whom, (har-i) the Almighty (likhaa) writes (leykha = account) credit – which is considered at the end. 8.

Such (jan = servants) seekers in (jin) whose (man-i) mind (har-i) the Almighty (aaey = comes, vasiaa = abide) is remembered (painaaeean-i) are given to wear – the scarf of honor – (dargah) in court of (har-i) the Almighty.

ਪਉੜੀ ॥ ਹਉ ਵਾਰਿਆ ਤਿਨ ਕਉ ਸਦਾ ਸਦਾ ਜਿਨਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਮੇਰਾ ਪਿਆਰਾ ਦੇਖਿਆ ॥ ਤਿਨ ਕਉ ਮਿਲਿਆ ਮੇਰਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਜਿਨ ਕਉ ਧੁਰਿ ਮਸਤਕਿ ਲੇਖਿਆ ॥

ਹਰਿ ਅਗਮੁ ਧਿਆਇਆ ਗੁਰਮਤੀ ਤਿਸੁ ਰੂਪੁ ਨਹੀ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਰੇਖਿਆ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਬਚਨਿ ਧਿਆਇਆ ਜਿਨਾ ਅਗਮੁ ਹਰਿ ਤੇ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਸੇਵਕ ਰਲਿ ਏਕਿਆ ॥ ਸਭਿ ਕਹਹੁ ਮੁਖਹੁ ਨਰ ਨਰਹਰੇ ਨਰ ਨਰਹਰੇ ਨਰ ਨਰਹਰੇ ਹਰਿ ਲਾਹਾ ਹਰਿ ਭਗਤਿ ਵਿਸੇਖਿਆ ॥੯॥

hari agamu dhiāiā guramatī tisu rūpu nahī prabh rēkhiā. gur bachani dhiāiā jinā agamu hari tē ṭhākur sēvak rali ēkiā. sabhi kahahu mukhahu nar naraharē nar naraharē nar naraharē hari lāhā hari bhagati visēkhiā.੯.

 

(Har-i) the Almighty is (agam-u) beyond physical reach, and (tis-u = that, prabh = master) God has no (roop) form or (reykhiaa) features; but is (dhiaaiaa) invoked – praised and obeyed – (gurmati) with the guru’s guidance.

(Jinaa) those who (dhiaaiaa) contemplate (agam-u) the unreachable (har-i) Almighty (bachan-i) by words/instructions of (gur) the guru, (tey) those (seyvak = servants) seekers (ral-i) merge and become (eykiaa) one with (tthaakur) the Master.

O (nar) human beings, let us (sabh-i) all (kahahu = say) praise (mukhahu) with the mouth – and obey – (narharey = Almighty – thrice) the Almighty in thought, word and deed; (laahaa = profit) the benefit of (bhagat-i) devotion to (har-i) the Almighty is (viseykhiaa) special, (har-i) God is found with it. 9.
